Introduction of product :
The name microcrystalline wax is given to petroleum-derived plastic materials that are much finer and less distinct in their crystal structure and possess a higher melting point and viscosity than paraffin waxes. Commercial grades of paraffin wax range in melting point from 63 to 93 C (145 to 200 F).
How does it work:
Hard, self-polishing floor waxes are made by changing microcrystalline wax with a catalyst to produce an oxidized, emulsifiable form. Paper and foils are laminated with microcrystalline wax, and polishes contain microcrystalline wax as well. The polish leaves a nonsticky, glass-clear finish.
Applications Or where it is used :
Generally, microcrystalline waxes are used in laminated paper products. They may also be used as adhesives, sealing compositions, and different types of polishes. Contrary to paraffins, microcrystalline waxes may have a wide variety of properties depending on the crude oil source and how it is refined.
In addition to being made from crude petroleum residue, microcrystalline wax can also be made from petroleum jelly by removing the oil with a solvent. A solvent's temperature may affect its physical properties.
Side effects :
Beauty products and cosmetics contain microcrystalline wax as an ingredient. It is 99% safe according to EWG, and it is approved by CIR. Microcrystalline Wax is not reported to cause any negative side effects.
Warnings and precautions while using this product:
Protect your eyes by wearing splash-proof eye goggles. If possible, wear apron or protective clothing. Whenever possible, wash contaminated clothes before reusing them. When stored at normal temperatures, it remains stable and is recommended for use.
